So, my biggest goal this year was to buy a house. I set this goal in the middle of last year.

Here… Continue reading 5 Reasons I Won’t Be Buying A House in 2019
Raise your hand if you have the same friends you grew up with. Anyone? Yeah, you’re not alone.

This thought has run through my head time and time again, sometimes all day. When Malakhai gets older, will he hate me?
